North Korea issued a warning Monday that the U.S. and South Korea were courting nuclear war by joining forces as tension escalates on the Korean peninsula.

The U.S. reaffirmed its alliance with South Korea following the November 23 artillery barrage, when North Korea fired artillery shells at a South Korean island, its first assault on a civilian area since the end of the Korean War. Two civilians were among the four people killed in the attack. The U.S. and South Korea have staged joint military drills since the attack despite warnings from the North.

The U.S. and South Korea have also began talks Monday morning on security issues; according to Seoul’s Defense Ministry, some of the items on the agenda are standard for defense talks, but plans concerning North Korea are also expected to be discussed. Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg will be visiting China, a North Korean ally, Wednesday.

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson leaves the U.S. for North Korea on Tuesday. Richardson, who has acted as a diplomatic troubleshooter on a number of occasions, has made regular visits to North Korea. He has also hosted North Korean officials in New Mexico.
